An Ode to Project Fear


They told us that Brexit would cause World War Three

But the real danger came from Donald Trump across the sea.

George Osborne warned of Emergency Budget woes

But the Christmas Eve deal saw us part as friends, not foes.

Donald Tusk said Western civilisation would cease

But membership of NATO gives us harmony and peace.

Mark Carney forecast a spike in inflation

But food prices stayed similar in all parts of the nation.

The Beeb said there’d be lorries that would tailback for miles

But truckers entered the ports with thumbs up and smiles.

The establishment warned Brexit would cost us all dear

But their predictions were based only on hot air and fear.
